Today I am just exploring the Land of Aruba. Aruba is generally flat with a couple of hills and rivers. But, At the shore there are many rocks and natural bridges. While I was walking around the boulders a nice lady came up to me and asked "Hallo, Hoe kan ik ...
... In 1634, near the culmination of their 80-year ware with Spain, the Dutch took over the island. Aruba is part of the Dutch Commonwealth and had its “Status Aparte” in 1986. Gold was discovered on the island in 1824 and mined successfully until 1913. As the yield turned meager and mining became unprofitable, the aloe plant became the primary agricultural crop. The island soon became the world's leading aloe producer. In 1929, The Lago Oil ...

Up and out for the now regular stretch and tai chi then back with tea for Tina and up for breakfast.
Headed into Aruba and hired a car, decided on an older one with aircon rather than the jeep and got a deal for 50 bucks. So off we went towards baby beach. The island is nice and friendly, quite sedate, and an easy drive. Shame about the refinery which dominates the southern point, approximately where ...
... nice meal and tried Sex on the Beach.
their cocktail of the day, but unfortunately it was a
disappointment...too much peach schnapps...tasted completely like canned
peaches, but it was pretty. The restaurant meals that I have had here
all have been very nice! Now I am back at the Inn and needing to get
organized for my big day tomorrow plus I have to get the rental car back
before getting picked up at 7:50.
... out by years of pounding rough seas this is one of Aruba’s most popular and photographed attraction. Luckily, some very nice people offered us some sunscreen, since we were unprepared for the ATV tour, thinking we were actually taking a tour in a bus with AC! This same guy mentioned to us that one of our tires looked flat, so they filled it with air and off we went. Next, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Brickell Bay Beach Club & Spa Palm/Eagle Beach
Our first visit November 24,2004 to December 4, 2004. Very clean, excellent staff. No request ignored. Nice average room, no frills, but excellent price. We were able to walk to beach in 3 minutes, 5 restaurants in 2 minutes, and many more within 5 minute walk. Multiple casinos within 5 to 10 minute walk. Rental car booth outside the door. Pool excellent, clean and always empty. Nightly entertainment in plaza next door. We could lay by pool in evening in dark and listen to music. If you want high cost frills, stay at Hyatt, but for a nice, clean room and ease to travel entire island very easily, we highly recommend this budget hotel. There is so much to do, that we really only showered, napped, and slept at night in hotel. We snorkled 6-8 hours a day, played slots at night, and ate very nice meals. Lovely time!
Pros: Very warm and friendly. Really good air-conditioning. Maid Service very good. Shower is good. Staff very friendly, helpful and available 24/7. Right next to MacDonalds/Wendys/Chinese restaraunt/couple of casinos and a load of Steakhouse-type restaurants. ATM straight opposite front entrance. 2/3min walk to beach. Beach Towels provided. Bus Stop right outside hotel on main road.
Great place to stay
Just come back from Aruba.Hotel was great.Not as luxurious as the ones across the road, but very clean, and exceptional every day cleaning provided.Reception staff friendly.In the middle of renovating, but did not disrupt stay.Would definitely recommend and return.
My husband and I booked a last minute trip to Aruba and stayed at Brickell Bay April 10 to 17/04. We found it to be a basic, clean hotel with few amenities, although we are not complaining because you get what you pay for. Our room was extremely clean, beach towels and beach lounge chairs were always available, the front desk staff was helpful.
This has been my fourth trip to aruba. I have stayed at the Windam , the Hyatt and the holiday inn. Brickell Bay Beach Club was in my awsome. Comparing it to the other hotels I stayed in, oviously the others were closer to the beach and the pools were larger but Brickell bay was one third the price and in terms of quality and service is was just as good as two of the others and even better then one but I will not say which. The pool bar was awsome, increadablely good looking girls and the drinks were half the price then the hyatt and twice as strong. The hyatts bar rips you off!!! here they get strong drinks and sometimes will hook you up with free ones!!!! usually a few times a day. I alway could get towels and we needed a extra cot and it was in my room with in 5 mins after I called. Every one was so increadabley nice, you almost feel as if they all know your name by the end of the week. We got there and check in and got up graded to a better roome with a better view for the same price. Most help full one third the price , drinks were great , grils were hot, I will be staying there againg and again, >>>>>much better then the hyatt
This was a very last minute trip for my husband and I over the New Year's Holiday (1/31-1/6). BBBC was THE only place with availability and a "Supersaver" rate at that. Maybe our expectations were not as high as others but we found the facility to be just fine. Our room was clean, spacious and made up daily, the air conditioner worked fine (which couldn't be said of our friends who stayed across the street with an inch of H2O from theirs) and the Staff, from Eric, Felix & Larry at the front desk, Robbie at the Pool Bar, to the maids couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly and helpful. Did we have to ask for wash clothes a couple of times (no different than Cancun or St.
One Happy Island, One Sad Resort
Just returned on 1/4/04 and was very dissatisfied with the hotel.
Missing locks, hair dryer, iron, no towels, bugs in coffee maker and EXCELLENT staff. I travel to Aruba 3 times yearly and this was terrible. The main reason I would return would be for the friends I made with the staff. The week I was there the owners were there and had I known this I would have said something. This is an inland hotel with walls surrounding the pool which is what I expected but I couldn't get a refrigerator or a cot to save my life. This was my new years eve choice to stay because it was the only hotel available on the entire island. Surprise, surprise!
Extreme make-over needed
We stayed at the Brickell October 2003. I have to start by saying that the staff is very very friendly but the hotel is not what it seems on the internet. We had a dirty room , the airco did not work well so everthing was very wet. Water was dripping from the walls. After 1 day all our clothes in our suitcases were wet. There is no restaurant so it is like sitting in the lobby to have breakfast with the TV screaming loudly. The elevator is the worst, dirty with a terrible smell. The pool is very nice but surrounded by walls. The store was never open. We only used the hotel to sleep and to take a shower. During the day we stayed at the other hotels to swim or have lunch and dinner. The Brickell needs an "extreme make-over" asap.
Our experience at the Brickell Bay was good. The wait staff was pleasant, and the rooms were perfect for travelers that enjoy spending their time on the beach and soaking up the Aruba sun. Beach/pool towels were also always available. The hotel is located about a block away from the beach, and is a 10 minute drive from Oranjestad. Overall, the Brickell Bay was definitely nothing to complain about.
